# Blank page inserted when using \include [duplicate]

Possible Duplicate:
Page break with \include

I am using the Report document class and to manage the document i have divided it into seperate .tex files that are compiled within a main document. The main document contains the prefatory material and begins as follows:

\documentclass[a4paper,12pt,twoside]{report}


I then include the various report parts using:

\begin{document}
\include{MF2_Formal_RPT_Cover&Title}
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
% Prefatory pages for the report %
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
\include{CommonwealthDisclaimer}
\include{SignaturePage}
\end{document}


When I compile the document a blank page is being inserted between each new included file. I have checked each file and they do not finish with a page break or similar. How can I stop the inclusion of the extra blank pages?

Use \input instead of \include.
because \include allways includes first a blank page, then print the text. \include is very usefull to include chapters (beginning on a new page) in your document. \input does not insert a blank page. – Kurt Sep 11 '12 at 18:16
